We didn't have time on this visit, so opted for the jeep tour from the visitor centre (but pre-book) this was well worth it, as we didn't have long enough in this area. Will return one day, but the jeep tour will keep us going until then.

We were driving through the glen and mountains seemed to rise sharply from the ground. Lots of mountains as we were driving through. Do stop safely at where you like for photo taking. Take time admiring the scenery instead of rushing from point A to B, you will enjoy every moments of it as I did.

just love the feeling i get when travelling through this area as makes you feel as if you are in brigadoon and could just imagine coming through the mist and finding another quaint and beautiful scene in front of you

There are two places to pull over and take pictures. Turned out to be a rainy and cloudy day which caused washed out pictures even with adjustments. I guess you have to be in the right place on the right day to get a great picture. I was there with right equipment but Mother Nature won today :)

As I drove through Glen Coe, I came to the realisation that this is what I always pictured the Scottish Highlands to look like. It was raining and foggy, and despite that, the views of the vista was absolutely beautiful.

We drove pass glencoe on a sunny date in July , the scenery is okish, it doesn't give us the same feeling as we see in the movie, I guess it requires a cloudy or rainy day to have that kind of Scottish highland feeling...

This was a stunningly beautiful place and we seemed like the only people there. Remember to take lots of midge spray.

This is what I imagined the highlands of Scotland to be like . The views are simply breathtaking . The trip up the mountain to actually see snow was exciting for us all .

The Glen Coe visitors centre and interpretive movies are well worth it if you are wanting to understand this natural wonder. So lush, green, and so vast, the area is one jaw-dropping scene after another, and steeped in history.
